  1. A copolymer based on styrene, ethylene, butylene and mineral oils seems to be the description of a styrene-ethylene-butylene-styrene polymer called SEBS, characterised by softness till 2 ShA and an incredible elongation. The Italian Chemical Industry produces tons of SEBS, but only for industrial application. I have not been able to find a DIY Seller ... till now. Bye Cami
  2. Thank you very much for these info. Do you know if Borflex 13 is sold in Europe, too? Does It retain scent during heating, please? Bye Cami
  3. Some saltwter "soft" baits are not in plastic, but in TPE/TPR or silicone. Due the fact TPE/TPR are not so easy to find/use for the DIY Makers, a good alternative could be the silicone: it is really easy to pour/inject the acetoxic silicone added up with some water drops and, if you wish, some drops of a liquid color: water helps silicone to be softer. To obtain a lithe movement the silicone soft bait needs some ribs long the body. It is better to include the hook inside the molded bait. Bye Cami
  4. For those that wish to inject it by themselves, here you are 2 molds: http://www.voblery.net/index.php?route=product/product&filter_name=savage&product_id=1582 http://www.voblery.net/index.php?route=product/product&filter_name=savage&product_id=1832 Bye Cami
  5. It seems to be a Savage Gear Soft 4Play - Juvenile Rainbow Trout, isn't it? Bye Cami
  6. Perhaps is not possible to obtain classical "horizontal" laminates, but it is possible to obtain "vertical" ones (ex. tails with different colors) and vertical swirlings. Bye Cami
  7. Let try to lightly oil cavities, continue to hold pressure and over fill the sprue. Bye Cami
  8. http://www.voblery.net/index.php?route=product/product&path=137_204&product_id=1610 It Is a mold for Porolon (foam), not for Plastisol. Bye Cami
  9. I usually put pigments in powder directly in the plastisol before heating it; to be repetitive in your recipes you should weigh powder and compare it to the volume of used plastisol (ex. 1 g to 100 ml). Powder pigments can be mixed between themselves and with normal liquid PVC colorants, too. Here you are a French tutorial http://breizhbaits.com/WordPress3/tutoriel-fabriquer-ses-leurres-fluorescents-avec-les-pigments-true-color-pigment-fluo/ Powder pigments, as mass colorant, are really funny, but you can use them also as paint: 50% PVC glue (ex. for PVC pipes) + 50% MEK + powder pigment and you have to apply speedily it over the skin of soft bait. Bye Cami
  10. Hi Guys, would you call the attached color as merthiolate? FYI Baitmold calls it Crystal Magenta. Bye. Cami

    A realistic soft bait with a lifelike movement. Bye. Cami
  12. Yes, ask to my German friends https://www.bleigussformen-shop.de/Formen-fuer-Federjig Unfortunately I can't say anything about shipping costs to USA. Bye. Cami
  13. Dear Guys, as I have already written in other post about this topic, I'm using the Dexas collapsible silicone measuring cup from several years with satisfaction even if its plastic handle is certified only for 120 °C (250 °F). I'm not a frequent pourer and I have already repaired that plastic handle, so I will continue to use it till I will see it really stiff. Now it is not more possible to find such silicone measuring cup on the market, but there is something better: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Chefn-SleekStor-Collapsible-Measuring-Cherry/dp/B000RN71XY Its nylon handle resists till 200°C (340°F) and there are other similar solutions, you have only to search for them. Bye Cami
  14. https://baitmold.com/plastic-bait-mold/worms/mold-w197-7-inch-175-mm/ I got the 5" and it works great. If you want/can spend there is also the 6 cavities alluminium version. https://baitmold.com/plastic-bait-mold/worms/aluminum-mold-w197-6-cavity-7-inch-175-mm-separate/ Bye. Cami
